Squeeze Will Open Up Their Songbook At The State Theatre Tuesday, Sept. 3rd


British rockers Squeeze will be bringing their Songbook Tour to the State Theatre in Minneapolis on Tuesday, September 3rd. Joining Squeeze on this tour is fellow Brit KT Tunstall, who will bring tons of her own hits to the State. Tickets are available HERE

It’s 1973 in South London. Teenage friends Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook form the band that will see them dubbed “The New Lennon and McCartney”. Over 35 years later, with their legacy intact and as vital as it has ever been, Squeeze are still touring and reminding fans worldwide just why they have left such an indelible impression on the UK’s music scene.

Squeeze’s contribution to music has been noted in 2010 with the site of their first gig being awarded a prestigious PRS For Music Heritage Plaque, which has so far commemorated the debuts of Blur and Dire Straits. It joins an ever-increasing list of Squeeze accolades alongside their recent Ivor Novello for Outstanding Contribution to British Music and their Nordoff-Robbins Icon Award. Chris Difford’s lyrics and Glenn Tilbrook’s music have survived everything over the years, from the ever-changing musical landscape to their own internal reshuffles and acrimonious breakups – but Squeeze is here to stay, still going strong and still loving every moment.
